Buy Paeonia 'Bartzella' intersectional paeony or peony: Large and fragrant blooms

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moisture-retentive yet well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Possibly one of the most popular of all the intersectional peonies, which are a cross between the herbaceous and the tree forms. It has inherited the best qualities of both its parents, so has large, deeply cupped bright yellow flowers over a relatively long period. They appear against a backdrop of lustrous green foliage, which forms a bushy mound, and takes on autumnal tones before it drops in autumn. It's perfect for adding an exotic-looking shot of early summer colour to the border, and shows a good resistance to diseases.

    This paeonia has been field grown, however in order to keep the roots hydrated and promote fresh new growth, we have potted them up. Therefore, your plant may not have a well developed root system just yet, so you should not worry if the soil falls away when you are planting it out.

  • Garden care: Plant so the crown is around an inch or so below ground level. In early spring apply a top dressing of a balanced, slow release fertiliser around the base of the plant and mulch with well-rotted compost or manure. Cut the woody stems back in autumn or spring.

Time will tell


Bought last year, didn't flower (didn't expect it to after just planting) so hoping it flowers this year.





Arrived extremely well packaged and in great condition. Was very pleased with the size of the plant & it will fill a gap in my border perfectly. Can't wait for it to flower!




Beautiful today


I do not use slug control - Peonies can be quite pricey but I know the slugs do not eat them and they will go on and on.




Outstanding plant


It definitely was one of the most beautiful plants in my garden this year

I purchased my Paeonia Bartzella a couple of years ago - it has healthy foliage but no flowers. Other peonies which I have are full of flower. Any ideas about what I should be doing to encourage these lovely yellow blooms? Thank you.


Thank you for your question. Non-blooming peonies are typically a result of planting depth - peonies do not like to be planted too deeply (i.e. no more than 3-5cm). Any deeper and they may not flower well. For the same reason, avoid mulching too much as this will gradually bury the crown. Could this be the reason?
